Former Boston Anchor Going to Pot

Former WBZ Sports Anchor Bob Lobel left the station after almost 30 years. Now, he's looking at a life after TV news and it involves weed. 

The Boston Globe says that Lobel will host a new video series and podcast about cannabis.

It will be called “Bob Lobel’s New England POTcast,” produced by Hometown Podcasts, which also makes “Bob Ryan’s Boston Podcast.” Bob Snyder, of Hometown Podcasts, said Lobel’s show will have a local focus, and that episodes will begin around July, timed to the opening of marijuana shops in the state.

In 2016, before the vote on legalizing pot in the state, Lobel advocated for the legalization of marijuana.

Lobel said pot prevented him from getting addicted to opioids when he needed to be treated for pain.
